Lisa from Ivory Blush Roses,has a beautiful blog that I have enjoyed for some time now.
I've enjoyed her journey's, and her joy's and wept with her through her sorrows.
For several days, I have been following her progress on this beautiful
cardinal pin cushion she was creating. It's stunning.
Last week, she asked for my address to send me a Christmas card
. When I went to the mailbox yesterday, I was stunned to find this gorgeous creation.
It had more meaning to me than Lisa could know.
Losing my mother that morning, I was not in the greatest of shape.
But this special gift I received was much more than expected. I'd say, a small miracle.
My mother loved cardinals, they were her favorite bird.
She loved to watch them at the feeders outside our childhood home.
She also had a collection of cardinals that were displayed in her home.
Receiving Lisa's special gift, and on the day my mother died, was a true gift of love
from both Lisa and our God.
How was she to know, when to send it so that it arrived when I needed it most.
A true miracle. You can read more about how this came about by clicking on her link,
and reading her beautiful post. I can't thank you enough Lisa, you, to me,
are a true gift from God and I will treasure you and my pinchushion always.
God Bless You from the bottom of my heart.
